Actor/director Richard Benjamin (b.1938) began his career on the stage, directing the London production of Barefoot in the Park (1965) and the following year, made his Broadway acting debut in The Star Spangled Girl for which he won a Theatre World Award for his performance. In 1967, he appeared with his wife, Paula Prentiss, in the TV situation comedy He and She. Benjamin made his first screen appearance in Goodbye Columbus and later appeared in such films as Catch-22 (1969), Portnoy's Complaint (1972), Westworld (1973), The Sunshine Boys (1976) and Love at First Bite (1980). He made his directorial bow with My Favorite Year (1982), and continues to favor directing over acting. Paula Prentiss (b.1938) born Paula Ragusa in San Antonio, Texas, was signed by MGM in 1960, which groomed her for stardom in such films as Where the Boys Are (1960), The Honeymoon Machine (1961) and The Horizontal Lieutenant (1963). In 1967, she co-starred with her husband Richard Benjamin in a TV sitcom He and She that received a loyal cult following. Prentiss continued popping up in excellent film roles thereafter in such movies as The Stepford Wives (1975), Friendships, Secrets and Lies (1979), Buddy, Buddy (1981) and Mrs. Winterbourne (1996). This photograph is from the collection of Francis and Violet Zane, Hawaii natives who moved to California in the 1920's. Francis Zane had a job at the historic Curran Theater and the San Francisco Opera House, which is where he began his massive collection, with photographs and materials ranging from the 1920's to 1960's. The location and luck of his occupation would land him smack dab in the middle of the celebrity world, allowing him to capture some of the most unique and interesting pieces of Hollywood History. Lightly bowed. Fine condition.
